Greece has managed to act as a pillar of stability in an unstable region, Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias said on Wednesday, supporting peace, social justice, relations of equality based on international law, while having respect for cultural pluralism and solving all problems through dialogue. The foreign minister was speaking at the Moscow State Institute for International Relations, where he was named an honorary lecturer. He noted that Greece’s diplomacy had been behind the successful launch of 16 separate initiatives and formations in recent years.

He highlighted the importance of Greece’s foreign policy in the country’s exit from the economic crisis and to shaping a policy of peace, so that Greece became a ?strong link? of stability and security in the region and Europe.
